Crispy Layered Rosemary Potatoes
Crispy Layered Rosemary Potatoes are thinly sliced potatoes layered with butter and rosemary then baked to crispy perfection. The easiest 3 ingredient potato side dish perfect for family dinners or holidays.
Every potato lover loves a crispy potato and the combination of rosemary and butter is one of the best flavors for potatoes. They look a little like Hasselback potatoes but sliced differently.
Remember the grilled herb and lime chicken from a couple of weeks ago? (pictured below). These potatoes were the perfect side dish to accompany the chicken along with simple roasted carrots. Impressive presentation for entertaining, but easy to pull off.
What potatoes are best for crispy potatoes?
I like to use Yukon gold. They are creamy and have the best flavor, but you can use any you like.
How to slice the thinnest potatoes
The mandoline (pictured below) makes for perfectly uniform thin slices every time, but it’s not my favorite kitchen tool because it scares me. The use of the mandoline helps make this recipe a lot easier and quicker and for that, I respect it. If you don’t have a mandoline, they are quite inexpensive and make fast work of slicing vegetables. If you have great knife skills, this works also.
Potato Layering Tip
Assembling the potatoes in this way ensures they are nice and crispy on the edges. When the potato slices are covered in butter they will be slippery so don’t try and stack them in the dish one at a time. Collect a nice stack in your hand (like a deck of cards) then stand them in the pan so they will have stability and not slide and you can make them look pretty.
Leaving the skin on potatoes
I like to leave the skin on the potatoes for this dish since you can see the edge and makes for a nice presentation, but this is entirely up to the cook.
I’ve served these potatoes for holiday’s, family dinners and dinner parties and everyone loves the presentation. Now, there is a lot of butter in this recipe (I didn’t say it was a diet dish), but what goes better together than butter and potatoes? The butter will guarantee a nice brown crispy potato as well as cook them in the center, so go for the butter. Even if it’s just for today.
